I see it everywhere. Do you?
Quilt inspiration! Everywhere I go my mind sees quilts. I’m surrounded by compositions in color; the books on the shelf, the clothes in my closet, the food at the table, the flowers in my garden...after all, where there is light there is color. GLORIOUS COLOR. Of course, every textile I see has scrap potential. My friend was wearing a shirt the other day that would have been fabulous
in my current quilt project. Would my mother-in-law notice if I snipped a bit off her curtains? They have great
visual TEXTURE! And your wool coat would felt beautifully
for wool applique! How about PATTERN? I see block configurations in floor tile, fences, architecture, board games, album covers… I may be a bit obsessed. For some reason my mind wants to organize the world around me into color schemes and stitch it all up into a quilt masterpiece. If you find yourself having similar thoughts, do yourself a favor and check out "Object Arranger" Adam Hillman
He takes arranging the everyday into organized patterns to a whole new level and it’s SO satisfying to my OQB (obsessive quilt brain)!
◊ Christmas Figs ◊ Block of the Month coming to Corn Wagon this August!
I've had my eye on this one since Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree & Co. announced last Christmas that something special was happening with her Classic Yuletide Sampler quilt. She shared a photo on Instagram and it was quilt-love at first sight! The Christmas Figs Block-of-the-Month is a beautiful sampler created to spice up the holidays with 20 lovely, traditional quilt blocks. Join this block-of-the-month group for a one hour class every 3rd Saturday beginning August 18th where we will teach each block step-by-step. We’ll help you work through the best techniques, trouble shoot, answer questions & offer advice. Finishing at 78 ½” x 96 ½”, this quilt pattern will be featured (along with 10 additional projects) in Fig Tree’s new book collaboration with It’s Sew Emma Designs. Kits will feature the new Christmas Figs fabric collection from Moda.
